Anniversary in Lisbon, Portugal

My husband Adolphus and I celebrated 19 years of marriage in December. He "surprised" me with a trip to Lisbon. It was not really a surprise, because he forgot and left his email open while we were both looking at his iPad, I pretended I did not see anything. The hotel reservation was there for me to read, could not look away. Anyway this is a photo of us at the Castle St. George high above the city. It was a fun trip with lots of good food, rest and relaxation.

A New Year

Once again the New Year has arrived and all the resolutions have come and gone along with all the celebrations, visits from family and time off from work. Life has been busy with work and family with little time for stamping and scrapbooking. Somehow I did find time to make a project today that was initially created by Keisha Campbell. Her blog is called A Bit East. She is an awesome cardmaker, scrapbooker, home decorator, and photographer. I love her style and I borrowed a little(really a lot) when I created my version. I have a cousin, who is fighting breast cancer, so far she is winning her battle. She has shown incredible courage and grace throughout her illness. I decided to make this project for her to let her know I am thinking of her and wishing her continued strength on her journey to defeat cancer.
